I don’t think I liked Frozen for the same reasons that everyone else who likes it does. First, I don’t really enjoy the Oscar winning song “Let It Go”. Instead I play “Love Is An Open Door” on repeat at least three times a week.
I think the trolls were pointless. Anna annoys me. Elsa annoys me. Honestly, Olaf and Hans made that movie fun for me. Yup. The snowman and the sneaky, manipulative youngest Prince of the Southern Isles. I don’t think Elsa’s parents teaching her to fear herself and her powers was a good message and was easily some of the worst parenting I’ve seen. And the worst part is that they die so there is never an acknowledgement of the error of their ways, despite the fact that they isolated their own daughter and treated her like a monster. “Conceal, don’t feel” is most likely the beginning mantra of a sociopath.
In whole, I’m not in love with it. I of course appreciate that the “act of true love” wasn’t predictable and was really thoughtful, but that wasn’t enough to make me adore this movie. Olaf getting impaled? Now that was adorable.
